Desperate! Transport dogs lost in TN

14 Aug

Hi Everyone,

Two puppy mill rescues were lost from transport Saturday afternoon (8/13) around 1:30 pm at a rest area on I-40 a few miles west of Jackson TN.  See below for details.  If anyone can help in the search or loan humane traps, please contact Sandra at the below number.

Thank you so much.

This is not a transport request, but it is a transport related emergency

We had a transport of newly rescued Shih Tzus.  Transporters  stopped for a break at mile marker 73 rest area on Interstate 40 East Bound, just west of Jackson, TN.  They dropped the crate, and two little dogs ran in terror. They are unsocialized, and running scared.  This happened about an 1:30  pm today, Saturday, 8/13.  The volunteers searched for several hours, but had other dogs and were running out of gas (for the AC).  We are terrified for these little dogs.  The rest area fence will lead them back to the interstate!

We are basically an east coast rescue, in 13 yrs we’ve never lost a dog on transport.  We are desperately trying to locate local volunteers to search for these dogs, to post flyers, etc.  We hope to have one of our people on the ground asap.  If you are able to help, we need you!  A substantial reward is offered for their safe return.

Please contact Sandra Harris…410-271-3805  and/or  912-673-0041
